Resolving Disputes Over Life Insurance Claims
When consumers purchase life insurance, they expect the insurance company to honor that policy upon their death. Unfortunately, some insurers look for reasons to delay claims by forcing the beneficiary to jump through burdensome hoops. Some even flat out deny claims for no reason.
A big reason insurance companies use these tactics is because insurance policies are drafted in their favor. Policies often include detailed, inconspicuous language designed to protect only the interests of the insurance company. In some cases, an insurance carrier may:
- Claim the death of your loved one was due to an excluded cause such as suicide
- Claim the death was due to a health issue that was not disclosed
- Say that the claim was not filed within the statute of limitations
